The Psychology Department offices and laboratory are housed in Pioneer Hall. Although Pioneer Hall is the oldest building on campus and is on the National Register of Historic Buildings, the department's laboratory is modern and well equipped. The Department’s recently renovated laboratory space is well suited for virtually any sort of student research project. All of the laboratory rooms are equipped with micro computers and the software and hardware are available to conduct highly sophisticated research activities in areas ranging from the neurosciences to social behavior.
The design of the laboratory space is intended to allow the flexibility necessary to accommodate wide student interests. The Psychology Department is also home to the Ploog-Tieleman Endowment for the support of Psychology Research. This endowment helps to provide funding for student research.
The department houses a water maze, which is used in research with rats.
